Will the business tax deadline be extended in 2023?

The IRS has not extended the filing deadline for business tax returns in 2023, with only limited exceptions for California businesses impacted by the recent storms and flooding. 

The deadline for S-Corporations and Partnership to file returns or request extensions is March 15. Since April 15 is a Saturday and April 17 is the Emancipation Day holiday in the District of Columbia,  the due date for C-Corporations this year is April 18. Sole proprietors filing a Schedule C on their personal tax returns will also have until April 18 to file returns or request extensions.

What relief is available for California businesses impacted by January storms?

California businesses and individual tax filers impacted by the power outages and flooding caused by the storms in January 2023, may qualify for an extension to both file and pay their federal taxes. This extension is automatically applied and based on the taxpayers address being located within the disaster areas.

From time to time, the IRS will provide extensions to businesses and individuals located in certain states or regions due to significant weather events or disasters. If severe weather this winter or early spring leads to a disaster in your region, you can check with the IRS to see if the tax filing due date was extended in your area. 

Taking a proactive approach to your small business tax obligations can help you avoid tax penalties or interest payments. Having your own accounting professional can provide peace of mind. If you have questions about tax filing requirements for your small business or want help requesting an  extension, reach out to a Rocket Lawyer network attorney for affordable legal advice.
